The Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops traditionally organize the Field Days of corn, sunflower, soybean, sugar beet and sorghum in the first week of September. At that time, about 1,000 visitors from the governmental, academic and agriculture industry as well as farmers have the opportunity to see open-air laboratories. The fundamental and applied research programs are primarily centered on the development of field and vegetable crop. The breeding programs place emphasis on high yielding capacity, tolerance to major diseases and resistance to unfavorable biotic and non-biotic factors. In addition to the breeding of new cultivars, the Institute provides a complete production technology for each cultivar. In short, the Institute’s extension service provides farmers with superior seed and detailed recommendations for soil preparation, other cultivation practices and crop protection measures.
